Proofreading (per word)
£ 0.023 – £ 0.039
This is the final stage of the editing process but certainly no less important than the other stages. This service is suitable only if the other levels have already been applied and other issues have been addressed and resolved. It’s the final spit and polish.
Please enter the wordcount as the quantity.
Any remaining typing, spelling and formatting problems will be highlighted and I will examine how your text presents itself in both hard, and electronic formats. This is the final opportunity to catch any errors before your work is presented for publishing. I am familiar with BSI correction markup and have completed the first of two SfEP proofreading courses. If you would like to use this service please send me a sample of the work to be proofread, your contact details, and a briefing of the work to be carried out. If you do not have a briefing, please complete this form and email it back to me with your sample. This can be completed in Adobe Reader.
Proofreading includes checks for:
- Spelling and grammar
- Illustrations and diagrams
- Headings, captions and footnotes
- Adherence to house style: US/UK English, ise/ize, abbreviations etc. Please provide explicit instructions with regard to house-style.
- That Links function
- Repeating phrases
- Detailed and properly presented feedback.
- Paragraph alignment
- Cover page
- Line spacing
In the case of academic work, I will need some more information. Please complete this form and I will be in touch.
Please allow at least a week for the completion of this service depending on the length of the manuscript.
